Here’s another excellent inspirational video from Alux (foot of the page). We have listed the 15 Business Books Everyone Should Read below (together with their Amazon (affiliate) link:
1. Napoleon Hill – Think and Grow Rich
An astonishingly popular book that has stood the test of time. Napoleon Hill set out to interview the world’s most successful people in order to decode the “law of success” and share it with all.
This worldwide best seller started out as a film that shared ideas on how to achieve health, wealth, and happiness.
3. Robert Kiyosaki – Rich Dad Poor Dad
I think this is actually the best selling money/wealth tutorial of all time. This book compares the “mindset” and attitudes of those who reach wealth and those who don’t – and it’s a key text for those looking to transition from being employed to being an entrepreneur.
4. Benjamin Graham – The Intelligent Investor
Graham was called “The greatest investment advisor of the twentieth century” and this book has been regarded as a “stock market bible” ever since its original publication in 1949.
5. Tony Robbins – Money Master The Game
World-famous motivational speaker Tony Robbins shares his ideas for personal wealth transformation and achieving financial freedom.
6. Timothy Ferris – The 4 Hour Work Week
Ferris’ cult classic teaches people to ‘get their lives back’ through a combination of strategies such as delegation, outsourcing, prioritization. It’s fundamentally a book on time management – pushed to the ultimate in Ferris’ typical style of taking an idea and seeing just how far it’s possible to go with it.
7. MJ Demarco – The Millionaire Fastlane
This book teaches people (in the Author’s own words) that “creating wealth need not take 50 years of financial mediocrity devoured by decades of work, decades of saving, decades of mindless frugality, and decades of 8% stock market returns.”
8. Charles Duhigg – The Power Of Habit
Duhigg dives deep into habits – both good and bad – and explains why they exist and how they can be changed.
The accolades – and criticisms – for this book are astonishing. Deeply philosophical, it has been called “One of the most important books ever written” by fans and “garbage” by detractors. Thought provoking and controversial.
10. Dale Carnegie – How To Win Friends And Influence People
One of the most famous self-improvement texts of all time. Still gets rave reviews and very little critical opposition.
11. Chris Guillebeau – The $100 Dollar Start Up
Guillebeau interviewed real business owners who had a unique business model, used no more than $100 in startup capital, and had no specialized skills – in order to create a roadmap that could be applied by other low-cost startups. Many of these could be considered “side hustles” rather than main businesses.
12. Robin Sharma – The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari
More of a ‘spiritual’ books than a business book, this inspiring tale encourages us to follow our life’s true calling and achieve true fulfillment.
13. Michael Gerber – The E-Myth Revisited
An all-time classic on startups – this book investigates why most fail and the critical differences between them and the ones that succeed. Explains clearly why the “entrepreneurial seizure” aka. “going into business doing the thing you love” fails for most, and what to do about it.
14. Grant Cardone – The 10X Rule
More of a motivational book than anything else, this book teaches that “taking massive action” is the fundamental shift required for success.
Thiel, a famous and ultra-successful Silicon Valley entrepreneur, shares his valuable insights on startups and out-of-the-box thinking. If there’s anyone qualified to write on this subject, it would be him; having been involved in numerous high-level Silicon Valley startups and worked with the biggest players since the old days.
